5 DAY MEDITATION TEACHER TRAINING WITH DAVID MAGONE | DUBAI, UAE
JUNE 2-6, 2017

‘We are a society of energy addicts, who expect quick fixes on demand. We fight our natural rhythms and then expect to switch off at will, but we could use our SLEEP to connect more deeply with ourselves.’ – Fiona Buckland

Stress is a major inducer of hypertension. As with anxiety, stress-related hypertension comes and goes – and is fairly normal. By including meditation into your daily life, you can prevent stress from developing into a chronic, daily condition.

Just 10 minutes of resting with your eyes closed can transform a problem, calm shattered nerves, and relieve sensations of fatigue.

Perfect for serious students of yoga and teachers alike, this five-day meditation teacher training designed by David Magone from Boston, will help you deepen your own meditation practice with a combination of restorative yoga, short lectures and setup excellent guided meditation practices.

David is the director of www.pranavayu.com and has received a number of accolades in the press with features in Travel + Leisure’s “25 Top Yoga Studios Around the World”, Vogue Magazine UK, the Wall Street Journal, NPR and many other publications, David also serves as a Dharma teacher and is one of the first non-Tibetan teachers authorized to teach Mangalam Yantra Yoga, a Buddhist Yoga practice originating in the 10th century A.D. David regularly contributes to the Huffington Post Healthy Living section, and is a featured teacher on Gaia TV and the Comcast Cable TV Network.
In addition to deepening your own practice across this 5 day intensive, you’ll learn to guide others to a happier, healthier and more peaceful mental perspective with 3 different types of meditation:

Yoga Nidra state of consciousness between waking and sleeping, like the “going-to-sleep” stage. It is a state in which the body is completely relaxed, and the practitioner becomes systematically and increasingly aware of the inner world by following a set of instructions. It’s very useful for insomnia, anxiety and whole host of other ailments

Shamatha Meditation is the practice (bhāvanā) of the calming of the mind (citta) and its ‘formations’ (saṅkhāra). This is done by practicing single-pointed meditation most commonly through mindfulness of breathing. It calms emotions and strengthens concentration.

Guided Walking Meditation an excellent way to ground your body which involves very deliberating thinking about and doing a series of actions that you normally do  automatically. It’s a wonderful complement to a seated meditation practice.
After taking this training you be able to:

  • Effectively structure your own daily meditation practices
  • Help yourself and others overcome stress and anxiety by inducing the relaxation response
  • Identify and overcome common obstacles to meditation practice
  • Evaluate signs of progress
  • Guide three different types of meditation in private lesson settings and group class environment

Since the meditation workshops are designed to be as calming as possible, the morning yoga sessions will include Restorative Yoga such as a slow, floor-based class that incorporates back-bending and twisting poses that encourage heart opening as well as liberation for the hip flexors, chest, and spine. The late afternoon sessions will focus on Yoga Nidra, Shamatha and Guided Walking Meditation to support the training anD introduce prospective teachers and students to the major tools and techniques to begin offering meditation classes.

Hi! My name is David Magone. I grew up in the Rocky Mountains, just outside of a small town in Montana called Livingston. I’ve been a full time yoga teacher for the last fourteen years, and when not teaching yoga, I spend most of my time cooking, traipsing through the woods, or hanging out on the Maine Coast with my partner Alexandra.

My yogic journey began in 1995 with a monk, a can of coca-cola and a packet of coffee creamer.

At that time, I was traveling as a percussionist on a high-school band tour through parts of China. During the trip, I had the good fortune to be seated next to a young Buddhist monk during a flight from Shanghai to Beijing. About an hour into the flight, the flight attendant brought around beverages and the monk asked for a can of coca cola. I’m not certain why, but when she gave him the can she also handed him a packet of creamer to go along with it.

The monk didn’t understand that the creamer was meant for coffee, so he proceeded to pour it into his soda, and it fizzed everywhere. Rather than being annoyed, he laughed so hard that he almost started to cry! At first, I was surprised by his reaction but then I started to laugh too. Neither one of us spoke the same language so we didn’t talk at all, but I really remember thinking,“Man! I really want to be be like that guy!”

At the time, I had no idea what that monk had done to become so light-hearted, but I assumed that it must have something to do with meditation. And so, when I returned home to Montana a few weeks later, I bought a book on meditation and started practicing on my own. I can’t say that I had any mind-blowing experiences that first time out, but practicing made me feel calm and happy. This small success served to give me the confidence that I was indeed on the right track, so I decided to keep on practicing from that point on in the hopes of deepening my experience.

Motivated by that initial experience with meditation, I eventually decided to pursue the possibility of greater health and happiness by dedicating myself more fully to traditional yoga and meditation practices. I began by studying philosophy at Portland State University and continued on to complete a three year yoga teaching apprenticeship with master yoga teacher Holiday Johnson while studying vinyasa yoga with “Yogi Bill” Counter in Portland Oregon. In 2001, under the kindly mentorship of Holiday, I began to synthesize many of my discoveries in philosophy, yoga and meditation into a unique style of vinyasa yoga called PranaVayu.

In 2003, I relocated to Boston MA and after teaching there for a number of years I began formal meditation studies with the Tibetan meditation master Khenpo Migmar Tseten Rinpoche [featured with David above] at the Harvard University Buddhist Chaplaincy. Before coming to the U.S., Khenpo Migmar had served as the main Abbot of the Sakya Monastary in Puruwalla India. Due to his academic achievements, Khenpo Migar was allowed to train directly with His Eminence Chogye Trichen Rinpoche, one of the greatest meditation masters of the last century and the private Tutor of the 14th Dalai Lama himself.

After studying with Khenpo Migmar for a number of years, I became one of the first non-Tibetan teachers authorized to teach Mangalam Yantra Yoga, a secret Buddhist Yoga practice dating from the 10th century A.D. Today, in addition to teaching PranaVayu Yoga and Mangalam Yantra Yoga, I teach Dharma courses on a variety of sutra topics under Khenpo Migmar’s guidance and continue to attend ongoing classes in Vajrayana Buddhism (Highest Yoga Tantra) at the Sakya Center in Harvard Square.

In 2014, the circle came full round when I was asked to join the Prajna Upadesa Foundation, a small non profit organization responsible for organizing a public teaching for the His Holiness the Dalai Lama in Boston. I happily accepted, and served in a number of roles in the lead up to the event.   Our small team put in a lot of hard work and were rewarded with a sold out event with over 2,000 people in attendance. Over the course of the day, monks and nuns from a variety of traditions and lay people from all across the U.S. gathered together to hear His Holiness give commentary on “the Eight Verses of Mind Training”. It was a truly memorable experience, and one that I’ll not forget.

In the hopes of sharing some of what I’ve learned with others, I regularly teach PranaVayu yoga classes and workshops all around the world. I also contribute content to the world’s leading Yoga website Gaia.com (Formerly Gaiam TV) and a number of other mind/body and fitness publications. It’s been an amazing journey so far, and I owe it all to that monk and his can of soda! If it hadn’t been for him, I don’t know if I ever would have found my way to yoga. I’ll never have the chance to thank him personally, so instead, I’ve decided to do my best to pay it forward by introducing as many people as possible to the transformational effects of yoga and meditation.

Learn to teach and practice Meditation with David Magone on June 2-6, 2017 | Dubai, UAE

Standard

David Magone in Dubai

Whether you’re a yoga teacher wishing to incorporate meditation techniques to your classes or looking to inject a heart-healthy dose to your daily life, this 40hr Meditation Teacher Training curated by senior presenter PranaVayu Yoga with David Magone from Boston will get you there.

You’ll discover how you can let go of an active mind and practice slowing down external thoughts for a sense of deep peace and higher levels of awareness using Yoga Nidra and Shamatha while practicing daily Restorative Yoga.

davi-magone-presenting-meditation-usa

YOGA NIDRA = or yogic sleep is a state in which the body is completely relaxed, and the practitioner becomes increasingly aware of the inner world by following a set of verbal instructions. It is excellent for cooling down the body and nervous system after yoga postures, restoring normal temperatures. The practice relieves insomnia by allowing you to disengage from thoughts and other stressors and to experience deep relaxation.

SHAMATHA = or mindfulness and concentration, is the practice of calming the mind and means “peacefully abiding.” Peacefully abiding describes the mind as it naturally is. The word “peace” tells the whole story. The human mind is by nature joyous, calm and very clear. In shamatha meditation we aren’t creating a peaceful state—we’re letting our mind be as it is to begin with. This doesn’t mean that we’re peacefully ignoring things. It means that the mind is able to be with itself without constantly leaving.

The meditation techniques in this training are designed to be as calming as possible, the morning yoga sessions will be Restorative such as a slow, floor-based class that incorporates back-bending and twisting poses that encourages heart opening as well as liberation for the hip flexors, chest, and spine. The late afternoon sessions will focus on Yoga Nidra to support the training. The remaining hours of each day are used to introduce prospective teachers to the major tools and techniques that they’ll need to begin offering their own meditation classes.

YOU WILL LEARN HOW TO:
  • Set up an effective meditation group, lesson plans and teaching techniques
  • Guide three different types of meditation in private lesson settings and group class environments
  • How to teach 2 different types of meditation: Shamatha (mindfulness and strengthening concentration), Yoga Nidra (for insomnia & anxiety) and guided walking meditation
  • Help yourself and others overcome stress and anxiety by inducing the relaxation response
  • Identify and overcome common obstacles to meditation practice
  • How to evaluate signs of progress

If you’ve been practicing yoga for a while, it’s very likely that you’ve run across a few postures that just feel stuck.

The highly acclaimed 200hr Pranavayu Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training led by number #1 rated Yoga Expert Teacher in Boston, will be jet-setting to Dubai’s sandy shores in August 2014 . I’m ever so stoked to host such a high caliber training to you and watch our participants study, practice, learn and teach hours of Yoga en-route to becoming fully certified Yoga Teachers under the guidance and expertise of David.

So what is the “PRANAVAYU” method you might ask? Here David Magone summarizes his program in a nutshell:

While yoga is at its essence a spiritual practice, the discipline also includes an undeniable physical component. Because of this, I have aimed to make physical transformation more effective by applying scientific principles to the practice of PranaVayu Yoga.  The reason I have chosen to do this, is that not integrating safe body positioning, intelligent practice planning, and the need for rest and recovery into physical practices has been shown to actually diminish physical performance!  In my experience, this is as true with yoga as it is with any other physical discipline – practicing without structure increases the likelihood of injury, makes postures more difficult to accomplish and can even lead to practice plateaus which oftentimes diminish overall motivation for continued practice.

That being said, it’s also important to recognize that the physical components of the practice are only one small part of what is required to truly grow through yoga.  This idea is nothing new.  To my knowledge, there has never been a single ancient yoga system that focused exclusively on asana practice as part of their mind/body transformation approach.  For thousands of years, yogis from various traditions have recognized that physical postures can be used to increase health and vitality.  However, most of these systems also integrated additional meditative practices for the eradication of destructive emotional qualities such as anger or fear and the cultivation of positive emotional qualities such as love, compassion or a greater sense of empathy.

I fully concur with these practitioners!  While a deeper yoga pose can be wonderful to experience, the ability to do a crazy yoga posture doesn’t help too much when you lose a loved one or find yourself dealing with a difficult situation at work.   While physical practices can be used to release and process the physical effects of these experiences, the asanas themselves aren’t too terribly useful when you’re in the middle of some challenging experience.  If you don’t believe this, try it out for yourself.  The next time somebody gets up in your grill, try breaking out warrior II pose and see how far it gets you!   Because of this, I strongly believe that if we wish to use yoga to remain happy, healthy and open through the unpredictable vicissitudes of life, something more is needed than asana practice.

And so, to provide our students with a more complete set of working tools with which to meet life’s many changes and challenges, I have integrated lessons from traditional yogic philosophy, exercise science and meditation into the structure of every PranaVayu class.  Typically, our base level classes always begin with a short philosophical teaching and traditional guided breathing practices (pranayama).  The class then integrates a full warm-up and cool-down cycle designed to enhance flexibility and muscle recovery, seven short sequences of postures strategically designed to focus on all important ranges of motion. Additionally, as research has shown that 12 minutes are required to engage a true relaxation response, every PranaVayu class includes a minimum of 15 minutes of guided meditation in savasana.

Finally, because only a small fraction of our time is actually spent on the mat, I have also chosen to integrate additional practice methods into our overall training approach.  These methods give us a concrete set of tools to help us take our yoga off of the mat and into the world.  Developed under the guidance of Harvard University Chaplain Khenpo Migmar Tseten, this system gives our students the philosophical and meditative grounding necessary to make the world a better place through the conscious cultivation of  generosity, discipline, patience, effort, meditation, and wisdom in our daily lives and actions.

Noura El-Imam in Side Angle Yoga Pose. Clothes by Carrot, Banana and Peach.

Delighted to share with you my short’n’very sweet interview with On Cloud Zen about my transition from the corporate path to my passion in yoga and launching Yogalates Bliss in Dubai :

The yogi: Noura El-Iman

The location: The desert in Dubai

The pose: Side Angle (Parsvakonasana)

The benefits: This variation of Parsvakonasana is a brilliant posture to do first thing in the morning. It’s an energy-inducing pose that sculpts and tones the body, helping us to connect with the earth. If you’re feeling slightly confused or lacking in routine, this side angle pose helps to remind you to retain a down-to-earth attitude and work on breaking down your ego. It also acts as a reminder to live life with an open heart and spirit.

About the yogi: Noura is the founder of Yogalates Bliss in Dubai and started her own yoga journey eight years ago. “I loved how yoga balanced my weight training and rock climbing,” explains Noura. “The release of tight muscles and the nervous system calming down, that ‘internal massage sensation’ you get after a session. So I started teaching yoga before jetting off to a yoga and surf retreat in Bali. We all arrived with excess baggage left feeling so much lighter and freer and after that experience I gained a much sharper perspective of what I wanted to do in life. Bali left a profound effect on me and helped to catapult me into running my own yoga and pilates business.” Noura, who is a brand ambassador for the organic yoga clothes line, Carrot, Banana & Peach also loves horse-riding, swimming and travelling. “My dream travel destination is Iceland due to its jaw-droppingly surreal scenery; the dormant volcanoes, glacial streams and geothermal springs. Oh and fingers crossed, I bump into Bjork in Reykjavik!” Noura finds her own sense of Zen by getting creative with new cooking recipes and taking midnight strolls when everyone else is asleep.
